Irish bagpipes solo, HMV IM354. A marching tune relating to the Irish Rebellion of 1798, followed by a song written by Jack Sheehan, a Republican prisoner in Hare Park Prison Camp in County Kildare, in 1924. These two present either end of a spectrum of difficulty for pipers, Who Fears to Speak of '98 is somewhat tricky to play while Legion of the Rear Guard is an excellent tune for a beginner, especially for learning to use the regulators. More of Leo's 78 RPM recordings may be heard on the CD...
